Wednesday, December 8, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Registration Link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/4826581581900597006

The workshop covers the principles of mindfulness and self-regulation and gives examples to teach students with disabilities how to become more mindful without a meditation practice. Teaching strategies covered include breath awareness, recognizing emotional experiences without trying to change them, and practices that teach heightened awareness of the senses. Attendees are given strategies to take with them to use themselves and to share with youth with disabilities.

Learning Objectives:

  • Attendees will link principles of mindfulness and self-regulation.
  • Attendees will gain exposure to teaching strategies that foster mindfulness.
  • Attendees will map mindfulness strategies to a positive behavior interventions and support (PBIS) matrix.
